In a change to the usual Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt blocks I have another little project to show you. It is another mat for the cat, using up the left over half square triangles from last years 'Scrappy Challenge'. You won't remember that because I haven't shown you yet. I am interested in trying out different layouts for HST's and there were enough left over to make this mat.
I also wanted to use the project to test my quilting skills. For over a year I have been practising drawing feathers, but did not have the courage to try it on an actual quilt. The muscle memory you gain from drawing really does help and when I took to my machine, they came out naturally - what had I been waiting for!
Quilted Cat Mat - Kim Diehl fabrics
The fabrics are the Kim Diehl leftovers from the Dear Jane quilt, which is still waiting to be quilted. Even with Dear Jane, my 2017 Scrappy Challenge and this small project, I still have plenty of fabric to make MANY more quilts.
